Page 1 of 1 to 2.0 in different directory

Hello all.
I am currently using Opencart
I would like to update to Opencart 2 (latest version).

I have quite a few mods on my setup, so I was wondering if I installed a fresh copy of Opencart 2 in another directory, if I would be able to export and import my current store database into the newly installed Opencart 2.0.

My current setup is as follows:
Current Opencart installation is on
Want to install Opencart 2 in root directory:

I figure instead of upgrading my current installation to 2.0 and deal with errors, etc., I would install Opencart 2 in the root directory and reconfigure all the mods again until all is working perfectly. Once all is moved over from and configured properly, I would use for access to my online shop.

Does this sound correct and Is this possible?

Thank you, experts!

Yup, I am currently doing the same thing. Make sure you make a new database for 2.0 and you should be good.

Can you export and import customers and previous orders? A friend of mine has asked me to help with upgrade from 1.5.x to latest. I want to plan this out before I start. Thanks for any replies. ;)
